The TAMA ‘SLP’ Vintage Steel 5-1/2”x14” Snare Drum steel shell's powerful projection, plus the Sound Arc Hoops add sustain, wider tuning range and a fuller frequency response. This drum sounds great tuned low or high. By using the Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Snappy Snares, this drum generates a rich and dry response, reminiscent of many vintage drums.
The nickel-plated steel shell drum is the beaded design with a round bead around its center, a design element found in several classic snare drums but sold at much higher prices than this excellent snare drum. The bead stiffens and strengthens the shell and the bead internally disperses the sound waves, adding to the shells great response.
The nickel-plated shell and chrome-plated hardware gives this drum a great appearance and it will look good behind any drum set of any other finish. There are ten dual lugs of the vintage style tube lugs, made of brass but chrome-plated. These dual tube lugs have all together, only a very small area of contact with the shell, which helps improve the resonance of the drum even further.

TAMA’s “Sound Lab Project” Snare Drums:
The snare drum is the keystone of any drummer's sound. At some point in the musical journey, the player will embark on a search for the perfect drum to enhance their sound. With that player in mind, TAMA created the S.L.P. “Sound Lab Project” series.
TAMA’s extensive research and development process led to a varied offering of S.L.P. shell materials, thickness (and number of plies of the wood shells) and the specific parts were experimented with to find each shell material’s full sonic potential.
The Sound Lab Project comprises three different maple shell snare drums and one of bubinga. There are two steel shell snares, one of aluminum and one of brass. Each of these snare drums features its own customized and unique design and one of them could be your best snare drum and at a relatively low price for a snare drums of this quality!
TAMA’s Sound Arc Hoop snare hoops:
The Sound Arc Hoop was specially developed for the Sound Lab Project (S.L.P.) snare drums. This inward curved 2.3mm steel hoop enhances the natural tone of the snare drum, and offers sensitivity, precise tuning, and control.
